### In science:

The same distributions (18) and (19) are obtained in the canonical ensemble by cancelling the ﬁrst variations of free energy at ﬁxed mass, using δFB − αδM = 0.
Dynamics and thermodynamics of a simple model similar to self-gravitating systems: the HMF model
Another possibility that can give rise to deviations of the ﬂavor mix from the canonical 1 : 1 : 1 is the idea of neutrinos of varying mass (MaVaNs), in which neutrino masses are related to the dark energy.
Concluding Remarks/Summary
In the context of (BD) theory whose scalar potential term consists of only a mass term and matter ﬁelds, the action in the canonical form is given by m2φ2 + LM (cid:21) . S = Z d4x √g (cid:20)− g µ
Friedmann Equation for Brans Dicke Cosmology
But over the last couple of years, there has been a growing number of studies, based on both X-ray [in these proceedings see Oskinova; Albacete-Colombo] and UV [Massa] data which indicate that O star winds are signiﬁcantly clumped, and canonical empirical mass-loss rates overestimated.
Mass loss summary - a personal perspective
Our current understanding of disk masses is severely limited by four factors: 1) the very small number of ﬁrm millimeter disk detections; 2) the uncertain dust opacities; 3) the grain size distribution that may vary from disk to disk; and, 4) the gas–to–dust mass ratio, canonically assumed to be 100.
Disks around Brown Dwarfs and Cool Stars
On the other hand, a canonical calculation of q ¯q masses by Godfrey and Isgur predicts the ﬁrst f0 and a0 to each have masses of 1090 MeV, within shooting distance of 980 MeV.
The canonical example of this ordering is the Fermi liquid, where it is the low frequency spectra which can be typically modeled in terms of quasi-free noninteracting particles (perhaps with renormalized masses).
Electrodynamics of correlated electron systems
In a canonical model, the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are accreting, nuclear-burning white dwarfs (NBWDs), which explode when the white dwarf (WD) reaches the Chandrasekhar mass, MC .
The Progenitors of Type Ia Supernovae: Are They Supersoft Sources?
An additional mass term ∝ φ2 (on top of the Coulombic interaction) in the inﬂaton’s potential, while jeopardizing slow roll inﬂation, can nevertheless lead to additional e-folds in a DBI regime due to the non-canonical kinetic term of an open string mode inﬂaton like the brane distance.
Primordial Fluctuations in String Cosmology
Etot and of the baryon loading B = MB c2/Etot of the e+e− plasma (where MB is the mass of the baryon loading): in the limit of B → 0 the canonical GRB would result in a short GRB and, in the opposite limit of B → 10−2 , which is the maximum possible value,59 it would result in a long GRB.
Fundamental physics from black holes, neutron stars and gamma-ray bursts
Thus, if hard power-law ULXs belong to the same canonical hard state de ﬁned in Galactic BHs, thei r BH masses must be & 103 M⊙ (Winter et al. 2006). A key signature of the hard state is the presence of compact, continuous radio jets.

Up to mass dimension 6, the action is just the linear combination of the canonical kinetic term and the Einstein coupled kinetic term , effectively giving a disformal ﬁeld theory.

The semiclassical spectrum of this theory is found by expanding L in powers of the canonically-normalized ﬂuctuations, χ′ = √2(χ − v) and θ ′ = √2 v θ, about the vacuum χ = v , revealing that χ′ describes the mass-mR particle while θ ′ represents the massless particle.
